Get ready for the podium
Curl BC is now accepting team applications for the upcoming 2020-21 High Performance (HP) Program.
The program is designed and overseen by Curl BC’s High Performance Director Melissa Soligo.
There will be two levels of programming. The first is the Next Generation Excellence (NGE), which will be made up of the top 4 ranked teams* (2 men’s and 2 women’s) in each of the following groups: U35, U21 and U18. The second level will be the High Performance Development (HPD) stream which will be made up of High Performance teams not in the top four or not age eligible as well as Mixed Doubles teams.
Curl BC is also excited to be offering a new Feeder System for youth and adult teams who would like access to the programming. The new program will allow athletes to access the resources needed to develop, systematically train and eventually compete. It is also set up to support athletes and teams in their transition to the High Performance system. The Feeder System will be run by Education and Camps Coordinator Kim Dennis.
The deadline to apply is May 29, 2020.
Soligo said: “We are excited to be offering this 2020-21 program which is designed to promote best practices by providing access to world-class coaches and integrated support team services that will enhance a BC team’s ability to achieve podium performances.”
Curl BC will again be offering performance incentive funding to teams involved in the program.
The top two men’s and top two women’s teams who meet the criteria below will be awarded funding.
